FAQ for AGM Battery

• What are AGM batteries?

AGM batteries (Absorbent Glass Mat Batteries) and Gel batteries are two main types of VRLA batteries. The fiberglass mesh between the battery plates in AGM batteries serves to contain the electrolyte and separate the plates. AGM batteries don’t require constant maintenance. However, regular functional testing is needed. Compared to other low-maintenance technologies such as lithium-ion, AGM batteries are widely used in a wide range of applications, from large portable electrical devices to off-grid power systems.

• Is an AGM battery the same with a lead acid battery?

No. AGM batteries are the main type of lead acid batteries, and AGM batteries are similar to traditional lead acid batteries in that they both have 6 cells, each of which contains plates with insulting separators. However, they’re different in many ways. AGM batteries last twice as long as lead acid batteries. Also, the AGM batteries perform well in recharge capability and start when compared with the lead acid.

• What are the benefits of an AGM battery?

When it comes to the benefits of AGM batteries, the speed of charge stands out from the crowd. Although AGM batteries go through a deep cycle, they can be recharged up to five times faster than traditional flooded batteries. Also, AGM batteries perform well in many applications. The cycle life of AGM batteries comes up to 70%. Also, they can provide a higher and more stable voltage. AGM batteries are perfect for vehicles that experience a lot of vibrations or movement since they are sealed and unspillable.

• How long do AGM deep cycle batteries last?

AGM batteries have a long lifespan and generally last for 5 years. If they’re charged, discharged, and maintained well, the life expectancy of the batteries extends from 6-10 years. Some top-quality AGM batteries have a long service life of up to 10 years. To keep AGM batteries working longer, proper maintenance and storage are needed.

• How to maintain an AGM battery?

AGM batteries don’t require constant maintenance though, regular testing and proper storage are needed. To store the battery properly, a cool, dry, and well-ventilated environment are necessary to prevent the batteries’ life-shortening. Also, keep them from being discharged to prevent sulfation. It should also not be overcharged or undercharged as this can damage the electrodes.
